2021 Ford Ranger caught on camera in new spy photos – report

One of North America's biggest motoring websites has published what are believed to be the first spy photos of a 2021 Ford Ranger test mule. Images published on the website Motor1.com show the Ranger dual-cab ute with LED headlights and tail-lights, together with a long exhaust pipe more akin to those seen on larger Ford F-Series pick-ups. The vehicle is wearing a heavy camouflage, which would indicate it is still at least 6-12 months away from showrooms.
